Fine Talent Scheduled to
. Appear for Big Free
With the line-up of talent received
for Heppner's Free Chautauqua,
June 8-9-10-11, and the promise of j
one of the largest tents put out by
the Chautauqua people, the second
annual event gives promise of sur
passing the wonderful time of last
year. That interest is keen over
the entire county is the assertion
of F. R. Brown, president of the
local organization, who says that In
quiries have been constantly reach
ing him for several weeks.
The local organization started
permanently last year, evolved the
system of electing directors for a
term of yeara terminating the
term of one director each year. To
fill the vacancy a new method of
election was decided upon at the
directors' meeting Monday evening.
The president will appoint a nom
inating committee to prepare the
names of condidates for election
and balloting will be held the first
two days, all contributors being en
titled to a vote. Results will be
announced later by the board of di
rectors. W. W. Smead is the direc
tor whose term expires this year.
Committees appointed Monday
evening Include advertising, Jasper
V. Crawford; reserve seat, Earl W.
Gordon; grounds, Albert Adkins,
Frank Turner "and George Bleak
man; finance, Mrs. F. R. Brown and
Mrs. Frank Turner, each to select
a helper.
The first performance will be Sat
urday evening, June 8, with after
noon and evening performances
each of the remaining three days,
making seven programs in all, each
program new. Tuesday, the last
day, the Chautauqua organization
will entertain the pioneers, and a
special morning program for their
benefit is being arranged by a com
mittee for that purpose. Pioneer's
day was changed from Monday to
Tue'Sday at the director's meeting.
To eliminate any misunderstanding,
President Brown anonunces that
seats for the pioneers will be re
served on the one day only.
Two plays, one at the start and
one at the wind-up of Chautauqua,
are headllners on the program.
"The Clean Up," clever modern
comedy success brilliantly acted,
will be seen the first evening. The
other, "Smilin' Thru." is slated as
the best love story of the century
and one of the best plays.
. Oliver's Philippine Troubadors,
presenting the poignant, exotic
South Sea music as only Islanders
can play it is one of the versatile
programs scheduled.
A good radio program plus the
personalities of the entertainers
make the Corlne Jessop Radio War
blers one of Chautauqua's most pop
ular attractions. Miss Jessop, one
of the platform's best entertainers
heads the company. She is assisted
by David Hartley from Howard
Russell's Collegians and Fern Zln
ser from the Chicago Civic Orches
George E. Toomey is the Chau
tauqua management's answer to the
demand for a forceful, educated,
understanding type of lecturer,
whose principles are grounded in
experience. Back In college day
George Toomey was named the best
"all around" athlete in the middle
west "Kicking Goal" is the Inter
esting subject dsicussed by Mr. Too
mey. Mrs. Harold Peat, a lecturer, a
writer and a recent member of the
efficiency branch of the British Mu
nitions Board, has studied the war
industry from A to Z. It is hard
to put into print the story she
tells. Born in the north of Ireland
she has the wit and eloquence of
her Irish ancestors and captivates
her audience with the story she tells
entitled "The International Future
of Our Children."
Such a program holds for all who
can possibly attend a promise of a
feast of good things. Make your
plans now to be in Heppner all
four days If possible. There will be
no admission charge.

Many Visitors Attend
Ruth Chapter Meeting
At the regular meeting of Ruth
Chapter No. 32, O. E. S., on Friday
evening, besides the large attend
ance on the part of the member
ship, there were many visitors pre
sent, the larger number of these
being from Locust Chapter at lone.
The meeting was of especial Inter
est owing to the reception of new
members into the order, six joining
by Initiation and two by affiliation
on this occasion, and the ritualistic
work was put on in almost perfect
order, headed by Charlotte Gordon,
Worthy Matron and Frank S. Par
ker, Worthy Patron.
Entertainment features on the
program were given by Mr. and
Mrs. Mitchell Thorn, the former
presenting a violin solo in his usual
artistic manner, and Mrs. Thorn
sang "Mother of Mine," a beautiful
tribute to the mothers present, Mr.
Thorn playing the violin obllgatta
while Mrs. Thorn was her own ac
companist at the piano. This num
ber was especially appreciated. Fol
lowing the initiation and close of
lodge refreshments of creamed
chicken in patty shells, Ice cream,
cake and coffee were served.

Friends were busy congratulating
Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Baldwin the first
of the week over their marriage.
The wedding was an event of last
Saturday afternoon at 4:30 and took
place at the court house in Walla
Walla, whither J. S. Baldwin and
Mrs. Rebecca Penland had journey
ed. Justice C. M. Wilbur perform
ed the ceremony. Report had it
that the marriage had been con-
sumated some time ago, but this
was one time Dame Rumor made
a poor guess. The contracting par
ties had thought to keep their
friends in the dark for a while, but
through a Walla Walla paper com
ing to Heppner the account of the
wedding was given, so Mr. Baldwin
had to get busy and set up the
cigars. Both are long time resi
dents of this place and they have
received hearty congratulations of
their many friends here. Those
present at the ceremony were Mr,
and Mrs. R. E. Long of Touchet,
Wash., brother-in-law and sister of
Mr. Baldwin, and the daughter of
the groom, Olivia Baldwin. A wed
ding dinner was enjoyed by the
party in Walla Walla and then they
all departed for the home of Mr.
and Mrs. Long who served a deli
cious wedding breakfast on Sunday
morning before the departure of
Mr. and Mrs. Baldwin for their
home at Heppner.

way. The anniversary falls on Sun

local church of Chlst is observing
the day. It is making an appeal for
every member of the church to be
present at the Lord's Table on Sun

observed in an unusual way. There
will be special music. The morning

life of the high school, another cer

with expectancy is the presentation

most outstanding requirements nec

Another "comedy of errors" and
Heppner bit the dust before the
Condon Invaders at Rodeo field Sun
dayscore 7-4. Heppner's ball play
ers were not alone In biting the dust
as a heavy real estate transfer in
the nature of a moving summerfal-
low field impelled by a high wind
gave the visitors and spectators a
tasty morsel of the real thing. The
Condon boys are said to be thor
oughly weathered for such a storm,
and this may be the reason they
were the less affected by It
That as it may be, "blows" were
undoubtedly the order of the day.
In the second inning there was one
away when Gerald Smith singled
and Brown picked one of Drake's
spitters for a roller, made to order
for a double play, down to DeVaney
at short. DeVaney tossed the pellet
to Van Marter on second, but It
popped out of his clove and both
runners were safe. H, Smith struck
out and DeVaney took Clow's dus
ter and heaved It over the first
baseman's head, G. Smith and
Brown scoring. No further catas
trophe happened until the fourth
when Brown was again permitted to
score on a bobble by Cason at third.
Condon was then held until their
turn In the ninth, in the meantime
Heppner tying the score in the fifth
and eighth innings. In the fifth
Dale Bleakman 'gained first on a
fielder's choice and was scored by
Thorn's double blow. In the eighth
with one away, Turner walked and
took second on Cason's hit, both
runners scoring on Gentry's single.
So, everything was tied up when
the ninth rolled around, and Con
don came to bat. Then it was that
a combination of three hits, a hit
batsman, and errors by Cason and
Sprouls netted them four more tal
lies. Heppner started a spurt in
the same inning but was forced to
retire with one additional marker.
There was some good ball along
with the bad, however. Outfielders
on both teams made some beautiful
catches, there was some good hit
ting, and good pitching, and all told
It was not a bad game from the
spectator's point of view, though a
hard one for Heppner to lose.
The umpiring of Poulson and O'-
Rourke was especially free from
criticism. Next Sunday Heppner
goes to Fossil.

Thirteenth Annual Meet
ing Churches of Christ,
to Start May 21st.
"The citizens of Heppner and vi
cinity are to have an unusual op
portunity to receive Inspiration and
Intellectual exhaltation," states Mil

Church of Christ. "Entirely out of

ed some of the best preachers in
this part of the state, and the pro
gram as outlined gives them a fine
opportunity to express themselves.
The messages will be somewhat va
ried in nature but there will be four
addresses on the Holy Spirit which
you cannot afford to miss.
"Special plans have also been
made for the music of the conven
tion and it will be abundant and
splendid. It will be under the di
rection of Mrs. Guy L. Drill of Pen
dleton. "At least eighty visitors from out

Large Audience Greets
Colorful and Pleasing
The climax of the high school
musical year came on Thursday
evening with the presentation by
the music students of "Pickles,"
charming operetta, before a very
large audience In the gym-auditorium.
Entailing a great amount of
effort on the part of both students
and Kate Frances Ede, supervisor,
the production was capably given
and well received.
The two scenes, garden of the
Wurtzelpraeter Inn in Vienna at
carnival time, and a gypsy camp
near Vienna, were well represented
in the stage settings. A high red
brick wall with white-barred gate
in the center formed the back
ground for the garden scene, with
the Inn of green and white set to
the right made a colorful contrast
The camp scene was represented
with a gypsy tent, fire In front, be
fore a screen background with
painted rustic motif, while opposite
the tent a real rock fountain into
which water was running was re
produced through the ingenuity of
the stage managers.
Act one opened showing Hans
Maler. proprietor of the Wurtzel
praeter Inn, in the person of Homer
Hayes preparing for the coming
carnival with the expectation of a
good business. Louisa, a waitress,
cleverly presented by Jeanette Tur
ner came in during the preparations
and also Captain Klnski, brightly
uniformed chief of the Vienna De
tective Bureau, Harlan Devin, fol
lowed by his faithful servants Bum
ski and Rumski, Earl Thomson and
Eddie Kenny, who brought the
house down on their first appear
ance as alert sleuths. Uniformed
as policemen, the boys, contrasting
in height and humorous in makeup,
did a clever dance that was one of
the outstanding hits of the evening.
The coming carnival was an
nounced in story and song by the
characters and the Burgher and Vi
ennese maiden choruses, the chor
uses being outfitted in the colorful
and historically correct uniforms of
Old Vienna, made by the domestic
art department of the school. Bur
ghers were Alcy Peck, Gerald Swag-
gari, uay Anderson, Homer Hayes,
Lee Vinson, Billy Cox, Raymond
Clark, Earl Bryant and the maid
ens Blanche Howell, Opal Staple
ton, Ella Fell, Mary Beamer, Mary
McDuffee, Lola Hiatt, Lucille Bey
mer, Lucille Hall. The pretty songs
were especially well brought out by
the ensemble.
The plot thickened with the arri
val of J. Jennison Jones, advertis
ing expert a very snappy part well
played by Clarence Hayes, who first
made himself unpopular by sticking
on the wall a sign advertising Pen
nington's Peter Piper pickles. On
proving himself a free spender,
however, he overcame the first
odium and soon had the innkeeper
featuring his commodity. Jigo, the
gypsy leader, Fletcher Walker, ar
rives with Ilona, a gypsy girl, Anna
McDald, and immediately Jones
falls in love with her.
Arthur Crefont a young Ameri
can artist John Franzen, meets
with reverses until he comes upon
Jones who brightens his future by
purchasing his picture to use in ad
vertising. Jonas H. Pennington, Ter
rel Benge, by whom Jones is em
ployed arrived to find that Jones
had made his name all too popular
through his pickles. His daughter
June, Louise Langdon, accompanies
him and recognizes her old sweet
heart in the person of Crefont
American tourists arriving for the
carnival were Adele Nickerson,
Phyllis Jones, Nancy Cox and Jean
Huston, who joined in the chorus
Lady Vivian DeLancy, charming
ly portrayed by Donna Brown, ar
rives in search of her daughter, lost
at carnival time years before when
a baby. Captain Kinskl formed a
plot designing on the hand of Lady
DeLancy in which he Impresses
Louisa, the waitress, to act as the
lady's lost daughter, only to marry
her in the end.
In the end Ilona is revealed as
Lady Vivian's lost daughter, and
love affairs climaxed are between
Ilona and Jones, Lady Vivian and
Pennington, and June and Crefont
Anna McDaid proved herself a
gypsy dancer of real ability, and
won a deal of applause through her
dance and use of the tambourine.
An interpretative ensemble dance
given in the last act by Zella Mc
Pherrin, Patricia Monahan, Virgin
ia Cleveland, Alice Cason, Doris
Hiatt and Theodore Thomson, was
one of the colorful and pleasing
spots of the entertainment
Carrying the load of the solo and
duet work in a capable manner
were Clarence Hayes, Fletcher Wal
ker, Anna McDaid, John Franzen,
Louise Langdon, Terrel Benge and
Donna Brown. The success of the
operetta is accredited largely to the
work of the accompanist, Helen
Falconer, music director of the Lex
ington schools.
As a specialty between the first
two acts Mitchell Thorn played two
violin numbers that were well re
ceived. He was accompanied at the
piano by Mrs. Thorn.
